George Washington women's squash sophomore Anna Gabriela Porras continued her international competition career this week at the 2013 Pan American Men's and Women's Individual Squash Championships in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Porras, named GW's first ever College Squash Association All-American last spring, has regularly competed for her native Colombia in international competition throughout both her junior and collegiate career.
Last summer, the Bogota, Colombia, native represented her nation at the World Team Championships in Qatar while in November she traveled to Nimes, France, to compete at the World Squash Federation's Women's Team Championships.
At this week's Pan American Championships, Porras received a first-round bye in the tournament before falling in the second round to Sabrina Sobhy, younger sister of former GW men's standout Omar Sobhy.
Porras shined in her freshman season, leading the women's squash team with a 16-4 individual record as the Colonials earned a final-season ranking of No. 13 in the CSA National Rankings.
Porras was tabbed a Second Team All-American by the CSA after playing at the No. 1 position on the ladder for the duration of the season and racking up 15 straight-set victories. She was also named Female Rookie of the Year and the Most Valuable Player at the Second Annual Georgey Awards.
